FINDING TREASURES for BTTCG BLOG PARTY

I have to tell you we have stayed focused lately and we are pretty tired of work - work and more work for the last month.  You know moving is a horrific job so it was time for a few breaks.  Last Tuesday we had to drive toward Kansas City, Missouri area to buy a new lawn mower so we stopped at Grain Valley and went to the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. 



 I found a few treasures there such as the lovely
 set of English rosebud plates 8 for $20.00 (seen above
with pieces I already had)



 I found a sweet little teapot like the bigger
 "Friendship" one given to me by my friend Kathilee! 
 I'm wondering if they made one for the little 
blonde too?  I will
sure be looking won't I!


 I also found a cookie plate (the one at the top) and a lovely old tin with handles.  Later in the week we went to a church yard sale where I found the darling glass basket vase.




Love the tin:


Here is the basket from the church sale:






I am joining other blogs parties today too:




   Also, I am inviting all you tea party lovers to join me this Friday for my first "Tea In The Garden" for 2016 season.  I know it will be great fun.  Those of you who participated before know it is about posting a tea in the garden, patio, deck, porch or sun room.  Also, not everyone is physically able to set up tea in a garden - so really you are welcomed to share your little tea time 
wherever it takes place
Here is my old old logo which you are 
welcomed to take and I will work on a new one.



This party today is about just about anything -
 see at the bottom here to see what I mean:

Hello Bernideen,
You found some very pretty things on your outing. I do love your teapots. I know some ladies really like teacups and so do I but there is just something about a teapot that warms my heart. Your home is looking charming and very cozy. I know you are tired but aren't you having fun displaying all your treasures? I enjoyed reading your post and thank you for sharing and hosting. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen, I understand you must be busy with moving and getting settled.
I didn't blog last week I was very busy with housecleaning and visitors.
You found some lovely treasures especially the teapots.
Have a great week.

I know exactly what you mean about work, work, work, lol. I am on the same boat and I am exhausted, but next week, I will literally be on a boat, sailing on the Mediterranean. I will relax then. Wow! I love your new treasures especially the plates and so nice that you already had the same pattern in the tea set.....Christine

Hi Bernideen,
So glad you had a break and found more treasures when exploring. Everything looks so lovely in your new home and oh those Sadler rosebud teapots are beautiful. I just adore Sadler teapots and I keep seeing vintage ones that I have never seen before. Thank you for hosting BTTCG. I am not sure whether the weather will be nice enough on Friday for Tea in the Garden but I will try my best. Have a Wonderful Week! Karen
